          Download the package to your virtual machine, to a desired directory and pkgadd -d ./<pkg. name>.

            Here are some links to help you more. While it is easy to just ask questions on this forum, I think you will benefit more from reading the answers directly from official documentation.

            You can find the Solaris 10 documentation here:


            Information about installing packages is on the link "Basic Administration" : http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23823_01/html/817-1985/index.html

            The specific section is: "Managing Software" : http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23823_01/html/817-1985/swmgrpkgsconcepts-52619.html#scrolltoc
